Wastewater-Based Epidemiology

Estimation of Community Consumption of Drugs and Diets

Bikram Subedi (Redaktør) ; Daniel E. Burgard (Redaktør) ; Bommanna G. Loganathan (Redaktør)

Evaluating wastewater contaminants can enable a community to understand drug consumption, from antibiotics to illegal substances and even diet. Wastewater-based epidemiology has emerged as a cost- and time-effective monitoring tool. Les mer

Om boka

Evaluating wastewater contaminants can enable a community to understand drug consumption, from antibiotics to illegal substances and even diet. Wastewater-based epidemiology has emerged as a cost- and time-effective monitoring tool. The contributed chapters cover the methodological challenges and applications of wastewater-based epidemiology. In addition to public health professionals, wastewater and chemical engineers, students, educators, and administrators will
find these topics useful.
